Any replacements for UAG or TMG or ISA? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    Are there any replacements for UAG which will provide the same functionalities as UAG/TMG - reverse proxy, VPN, Direct Access, RDP etc? We need to use that in SharePoint environment to provide secure application publishing.

  • No exact match covering above listed needs from Microsoft. You'll need to use a variety of products which will cover some but not all needs.

    Web Application Proxy (in Server 2012 R2) will do reverse Proxy for SSL enabled sites inlcuding Sharepoint. HTTP will be available in next version of Windows Server along with some other improvements that are basically UAG functionality.

    DirectAccces, is in Windows Server 2012 R2 with the same functionality as UAG. Also covers regular VPN.

    For RDP publishing and any other "non-web" protocols has to be handled by other products. Which you'll need anyway as you need a firewall...

    For WAP and Sharepoint publishing, see

  • Thanks Anders for the update!

    How Web Application Proxy (in Server 2012 R2) helps for external users, whether it is much secure as UAG when the traffic from both internal and external users hits on same front end servers? Should we need a dedicated server acting as Web Application Proxy?

    I am replying a lot late to your question but there is a great option for you as a direct path replacement for UAG.

    It is called Total Access Control from PortSys
